This morning when she woke up she asked if we could go on the bumpy roads with my friends again today. Thanks to all for a great run and for making the only kid feel right at home!

Great pics and video Stan. Did you guys do Longwater, too, or just Hackett after I left?
She is as sweet as can be! The first thing Keagan asked me when I got home was "were there any other kids?" he was bummed when I told him yes. He loves yakking on the CB......He and Jaeden would have talked each others ears off! Next time.....

We only ran Hackett, it was near dark by the time we passed the Longwater Trailhead, and it was totally dark by the time we aired up and turned for home.

Looks like a great trip, Stan. Sorry I missed it. I really want to get down into that part of the canyon someday.

There's a gate at the bottom of Hackett Gulch, at least there was the last time I was there. That has been the turn-around point the last two times I've been there. The gate has always been closed for me.

Looks like a fun trip. Based on those pictures, it could have been summer time down there rather than a December trip. Big difference a day makes though - we were down in that area yesterday getting our Christmas tree and there was several inches of snow on the ground.
